Best practices for QR codes on display ads
1. Optimize your marketing campaigns
An eye-catching display ad will get your business noticed, but adding a QR code is a versatile way to turn it into a cost-effective boost to your website traffic, increase app downloads, promote discounts and collect social media followers. For just a little bit of real estate on your display ad, QR codes on display ads can make those ads do twice the work.
While your display ad entices visitors, the QR code can enhance their experience with video content, directions to your physical business, instant payment or donation options and much more.
2. Enhance your brand storytelling
Storytelling is an important part of connecting with your audience. Numbers and statistics are no match for a well-presented narrative when it comes to creating memorable content. Customer anecdotes and authentic experiences always win out and QR codes on display ads can help you convey these stories. Use a Google Reviews QR code to collect feedback and then a Mobile Page QR code to present that feedback in a nice looking gallery.
Or let your customers know what the journey was like for your brand from concept to shelf with a YouTube QR code that connects to a video that tells the story of your brand.
3. Track your marketing campaign’s reach
QR codes on display ads also give you a way to measure just how well your display ads are doing by providing you with valuable information about their activity. Among the information QR codes give you is the frequency of scans, along with the location, how many new and total scans they’ve collected and even the operating system and type of device used to scan them. Use this real-time information to make adjustments to your display ad campaigns so they’ll be even more effective.
4. Adjust your QR code as necessary

Encourage customers to follow your business online with a Social Links QR code in your window display. This will list all your social media accounts and allow shoppers to choose the platforms they use.

Selling a new electronic item means showing customers how it will make their lives better. A Video QR code printed on your display ads can do just that.
